OLFACTORY ANALYSIS

GUSTATORY PERCEPTION

Tactile sensation: a little sparkling, helps to create a fresh sensation in the mouth. Round and full-bodied.
Taste: the first sip is sweet (sweet malt), intense, heating fruity and spicy.

Olfacto-Gustatory sensation/ back aroma: the intensity of the back aroma is intense, the durability is great. At the first sip you can taste a the sweet malt, the alcohol sensation, and the fruit taste (apricot, a little of ripe melon). As it warms up, a pleasant dry sensation beside hay, spices, and honey. The hoppy side is low, as the beer style suggest. Warm dry finish, prolonged aftertaste.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: intense, savage, full-bodied Tripel.

VEG FOOD PAIRING: to try with a aged cheese (I enjoy the sweet taste of this beer with the salty aroma of a piece of Parmigiano Reggiano, and I think you can drink this beer with a semi-cured Pecorino cheese). A savory pasta e fagioli (a creamy soup with bean and homemade egg-pasta, preferably tagliatelle or pappardelle), or a pumpkin & Gorgonzola pie.
